Ricardo Jame's Daily Tortilla Blog Tour with a Spotlight and Review

I am so excited to have Ricardo James here at Paranormal and Romantic Suspense Reviews with a Spotlight and Review.

Thanks Ricardo and Cedar Fort Publishing and Media for allowing me to join your Daily Tortilla Blog Tour!

Please take it away, Ricardo!

About the Book:

Sopes, Tamales, Pozole, Huevos Rancheros, you’ve never had Mexican food like this! Daily Tortilla starts with the basics of tortillas, beans, rice, and salsas, and then builds to an incredibly delicious repertoire of dishes found in any family dining room in Mexico. Say “adios” to Americanized Mexican food this is authentic, south-of-the-border flavor at its finest!


About the Author:

He currently owns a consulting firm that provides technology solutions to K-12 schools across the United States and South America. He lives in Springville, Utah with his wife and five kids. He blogs food goodness at

My Review:

There is an introduction that Mr. James shares with us the recipes his mom made growing up in Mexico and the explaining the basics of Mexican cooking.

There is a very fun and informative Platform section which explains how to pan and use corn and flour tortillas, sopes, gorditas, totopos and tamales.  The rest of the sections are split into Main Dishes, First Dishes, Drinks and Desserts. 

The Basics consist of Salsas, Moles, Enchilada Sauce, Mexican Rice, and Refried Beans.

The cover is very appealing and appetizing which makes you want to read and try out the recipes.  Love how all the recipes are very easy to follow and have a beautifully illustrated picture of the finished product.

The recipes I would love to try are the Queso Fundido Con Chorizo, Tamales De Puerco, Camarones Ahogados En Mole, Huevos Rancheros, Chilaquiles, Chile Verde, Enchiladas Suizas, Enchiladas Sauce, Mole Poblano and Mole Rojo Sauce, Taquitos De Pescado, Enchiladas De Pollo En Mole Poblano, Tamales De Chile Y Queso, Lasana Con Habanero Chile, Agua De Jamaica, Agua De Tamarindo, Limonada, Horchata, Flan, Flan De Chocolate, Hot Chocolate and Platanos Fritos.
